Bad

Stop, Turn around, Rent something else

Unless you're a big bust-a-move fan (and I mean BIG) this game is not even worth a rental. The old single player mechanic is intact and plays fine, but there's nothing fresh here. The multi-player, however, is the biggest disappointment. There's no head-to-head. Are you joking?! The only thing really close is a one board frenzy that leaves all players confused and not even the winner satisfied. Take my advice and pass this one up all together.

Really Bad

Mutiplayer mode is terrible in this version

I'm a huge fan of Bust-a-Move and Bubble Bobble on the arcade and other console versions. But this version is terrible in terms of multiplayer. They don't allow you to battle against another player like other versions do where you go head to head. Instead, the multiplayer involves all player (up to 8) to randomly shoot at the same huge level, which is confusing and doesn't require skill to win (you can button mash your way to 1st place). Also that this game is not colorblind friendly. I guess they didn't care to test it just like RockStar's Ping Pong game.

A Worthy Bust-A-Move Addition

So my introduction to Bust-A-Move was 10 years ago in an arcade. There has been a Bust-A-Move on just about every platform there is and I've purchase a few, so I can say that the game really hasn't changed too much.

The graphics are bright and colorful, as you might imagine a game with multi-colored bubbles everywhere.

The gameplay is much the same, with special bubbles that can either punch through without hesitation, or eliminates all bubbles of a single color.

Where the Wii version shines is the multi-player co-operative aspect. With 8 players, the game is hectic and intense, and actually provides the first truly unique experience I've had with the game since I first played it in the arcade. Combos would reveal and disappear quickly as other players took advantage of them. Rather than making combos to "attack" another player, you fight for combos and win by having the highest score.

For fans of the series, this alone makes it a worthy play through.

This game will also appeal to casual players also looking for new multi-player party fair. With 8 players, no one will be left waiting for their turn.
